Leading Brit female cycling star Trott (Laura) has admitted that great fight awaits for her as she prepares to defend her titles this year at National Track Championships.
The esteemed event will have Brit cycling elites vying from September 24th -28th at Manchester based National Cycling Center.
In regards to women endurance challenges, Trott would be joined by other Olympic champs such as Dani King & Joanna Rowsell. World champs such as Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker are the other 2 prime members of the 5-member team pursuit squad. The good bit is that, in spite of the acknowledgement of the tough battle ahead, like a true champ, Trott is focused to give it her best shot.
“I love to compete at nationals given the incredible ambience at Manchester velodrome. The home-crowd cheers for you constantly that act as great spirit and performance booster”, stated Laura.
“I just cannot wait to come up on boards for defending my titles- the competition surely would be hard though & I would be simply up against the cyclists who are generally my teammates- thus it is interesting to find out who actually gets to the top. With such huge numbers of young cyclists making breakthrough at the competition, I would have to be alert on next genre as well. It feels amazing to come up on podium top as a national champ & so I’m hoping to secure the same status up this year as well.”
Dual Commonwealth bronze winner & Olympian Jess Varnish would be sprinting in women sprint events at National Track Championships this year. She would be defending 4 titles that she emphatically won in the year 2013, beating junior world champ Dannielle Khan & Victoria Williamson.
Trott has recently shifted from Wiggle Honda to Matrix Fitness.
